The black PowerShot ELPH 150 IS Digital Camera is a compact, point-and-shoot digital camera with a 20 megapixel 1/2.3" CCD image sensor and a 10x optical zoom 4.3-43mm lens with a 35mm equivalent of 24-240mm. The ELPH 150 is capable of capturing high resolution images as well as high definition 720p video due to the implementation of the DIGIC 4+ image processor to handle the data. Additionally, while shooting, all settings and image monitoring can be done with the 2.7" LCD display.

During shooting, the 10x optical lens benefits from Intelligent IS for optical stabilization. This allows you to shoot at longer focal lengths and with slower shutter speeds without getting undesirable blur from camera shake. There are also a variety of scene modes for getting effects like fisheye and monochrome. In addition to all of this, ECO mode reduces power consumption and a help button will explain the functions of your camera.

    I have already recommended this camera to multiple people. I use my camera a lot for concert pictures and I just purchased this a few weeks ago. It had its first concert test on 8/31/14 for the Monumentour Paramore/Fallout Boy show in Scranton, PA. I will add a few of the images to this review!

    It's a great size, it's got the specs I needed for what I use it for and it was set at an amazing price! Very happy with this purchase for my personal photo purposes!

    I bought this camera for a trip because I wanted a higher mega pixel camera for better quality pics. I own a Cannon PowerShot ELPH 510HS 12 MP and a PowerShot SD1200 IS 10 MP. This camera is a 20 MP camera and takes worse pics than both my other two cameras. It takes pics that are more grainy and less sharp than my other two cameras. It digitizes when you zoom into a picture that was already taken and while you are looking at it on the computer. However it is lightweight which is good but it feels cheap. I like the camera but it takes poor quality pictures. I have taken several photography classes and take photos as part of my job, so I know how to use a camera. I had all three cameras on the highest resolution possible.

      I have used many digital cameras. This Canon is by far the best. Great image quality. Fast start up, fast focus. No manual mode but haven't found that to be a negative. AUTO mode is smart. Truly pocket size, great battery life. Love the AUTO maco.

                Bought this camera to document pre and post op results in my plastic surgery practice. It is simple for the staff to use and produces high quality photos for the medical record and for use online (with patient approval of course!)
